Subjects such as composition, selective focus, exposure, and lighting, combined with a better understanding of camera controls, can open a whole new world of image-making for you! Students of all skill levels are welcome. A DSLR or an advanced point and shoot camera are suggested. The class features interactive demos and a field trip, weather permitting.

In this next level class, armed with an understanding of how a camera works, you can concentrate more on what’s in the frame. We will practice and review composition, selective focus, exposure, and lighting. Students should have basic experience taking pictures and have a camera with adjustable controls such as a DSLR, although those with advanced point and shoot cameras will also benefit from this course.
